Seeed removed the link because it's out of stock, and I believe Niibe-san
is working on a newer version (FST-01G) which is functionally identical,
but with components that are easier to source. Thus it is possible that
Seeed will not restock the FST-01 (this is speculation on my part).

If you simply want some generic hardware to try gnuk, you can get the
STM32F103C8T6 Minimum System Board (example
a.k.a. "Blue Pill <http://wiki.stm32duino.com/index.php?title=Blue_Pill>,"
and build for that target. It is not as beautiful or usable a board as the
FST-01 for the use case of a portable OpenPGP smart card, but it works.

Note that the STM32F103C8T6 reports that it has only 64K flash, which is
not enough for gnuk, but the chip almost always has 128K flash and will
work fine. You must change your build of texane/stlink to get it to ignore
the 64K flash size (excellent patch here
